What lies within us

 I love this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. It reminds us that what is inside of us, our inner being, is truly more important that everything outside of us. Before focusing on externals, we must first focus on what is inside us.

The photo I used here is a solitary raindrop with a flower reflected inside it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of my favorite writers. I first knew him as a poet, but then I discovered later his other writings as an essayist and lecturer. Several of his quotes resonate well with what I believe in.

grandchildren and grandparents

Let us celebrate grandparents' day with this quote from Mary H. Waldrip.

There is very little known about Mary H. Waldrip except that she was a British nurse.  However to her are credited a few inspirational quotes and this is one of them.

The photo is my grandson and I.
